Ueno Park is also a prime cherry blossom viewing spot.

Staying in that part of Tokyo cuts out some transit time on an already-short visit by taking the Keisei Skyliner (also the PH is not conveniently located to a metro).

OTOH, if the modern side of Tokyo is what you're after, please disregard.
Given OP travel dates I'm thinking it's going to be hard to find a hotel on short notice - but completely agree with your suggestions - as someone that lives in Tokyo I find the "old" sections much more enjoyable....
